Mr. Tom Crist -(Canadian Lottery winner)
Remember, these emails are lottery scams and Google and Facebook did not send Tom Crist your email address for a chance to receive $1,200,000. These fake mail messages were created by scammers to trick gullible persons into sending their personal and financial information in order to use it to trick them into sending money for the prizes they think they will receive.
Do not send your money, personal and financial information, unless you want to be scammed. Never send money to someone who claims that you have won some prize and that you need to send money in order to claim it. This is usually the first sign that someone is attempting to scam you.
Tom Crist said he will only donate the $40 million lottery prize money to the Calgary’s Tom Baker Cancer Center that helped treated his late wife and other charities.
